Sam: My name’s Sam and I play guitar in Counterfeit.
Jamie: I’m Jamie I sing in Counterfeit and play guitar badly. It’s our first time here playing and as punters as well. So I’m keen, I’m keen for a bit of Reading. We’re actually coming back on Sunday as well to come hang out and check out some more bands. So up to Leeds tomorrow, back down on Sunday. Sammy B.

Sam: Hello.
Jamie: I have some questions for you.
Sam: For me?
Jamie: Are you ready?
Sam: Uh, I think so.

Jamie: What was your most listened to album in high school?
Sam: Take Off Your Pants And Jacket by Blink 182 was my most listened to I think in high school, it was non stop.
Jamie: Good album.
Sam: Strong record. Alright James B. Listeners back home, they wanna know what was the first album that you bought?
Jamie: The first album that I bought was probably a record called Chicago by a band called Chicago.
Sam: Okay.
Jamie: Well actually Chicago Transit Authority as they were back then. It was from my local record store in Petersfield where you and I obviously grew up.
Sam: I remember it well yeah yeah yeah.
Jamie: But that was the first album I ever bought, we were fortunate enough to be able to go into our mums office when we were young and basically just raid her entire stock of like Now 34’s cos she was like A&R. So we used to just go in there like we’ll take this. Sam Bower. What was the first gig you went to?
Sam: It was a U2 headline but Kelis was the first support on so technically it was Kelis which was wicked.
Jamie: It was on the Elevation tour I believe.
Sam: The Elevation tour yes. Very cool. Alright, James Bower. What is your favourite city to have a day off in?
Jamie: Venice.
Sam: Strong.
Jamie: We’ve been fortunate enough to play Venice once, well sort of close to Venice anyway and it’s an amazing city. It’s kind of like Disneyland for older people. Sam. What is your most used emoji?
Sam: I love the prawn emoji. I love the duck emoji. And the crane is one that’s often overlooked, very detailed emoji. I never use them to express myself. It’s more of a conformation like to brighten someones day with a duck or something like that. Onto the next. James Bower. What was the last song you listened to?
Jamie: Probably Brainfreeze by Decade. Literally just had that on in the van in my headphones.
Sam: Okay James this is a tough one.
Jamie: Okay.
Sam: Umm. Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw?
Jamie: Slytherin. If you wouldn’t mind.
Sam: That’ll be the lot. Okay interesting.
Jamie: And that’s it!
